It has been a long time since my last post. I am sorry about that. I just got back from vacation in Minnesota, Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I have a couple of photos that I hope to post soon. For now, I wanted to get this post completed. I made zucchini bread and wanted to give out the recipe.
2 cups sugar
2 cups zucchini - grated (and peeled if you like) -- squeeze off excess juice
1 cup oil
2 tsp vanilla
3 cups flour
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
optional - 1 cup nuts (I don't use the nuts myself)
Beat eggs. Add next four ingredients and mix well. Add dry ingredients and mix completely. Bake 1 hour at 325 degrees. Makes 2 loaves.
This recipe has been widely used by my family. Zucchini bread is definitely a childhood favorite of mine.
Whenever I have an over abundance of zucchini in my garden, I grate it up and freeze it in 2 cup portions. That way I can have zucchini bread all year long. Yum!
